Cookies

1Dries: Whisk flour and salt in a bowl. Set aside.

2Base: In a mixer, cream together butter and sugar. Next, add eggs, vanilla and optional flavorings of citrus zest or spices (ie: cardamom).

3Gradually, add dries to base just until incorporated. Chill in refrigerator up to one hour. Roll on lightly floured surface. Cut shapes.

4Decorate: Unwrap Jolly Ranch candies and place in a ziplock back, doubled. Then, pound it out with a hammer until they are crushed into small pieces. Place into cutouts (fill because candy will melt down).

5Optional: We used imprint letter stamps. See blog post for the link on Amazon.

6Use a silicone pat so the candy won't stick.

7Bake at 350F for 8-10 minutes or until edges are slightly browned.
